The Day I Woke Up Different is about a child who is raised in a Vietnamese household and starts noticing the contrasts between their home life and American society outside of it. Standing out can often feel lonely. But, sometimes all it takes is that someone who understands and helps you realize that being different means being unique. And that’s a great thing!
